"Did you get off on a bad foot, baby
Do you have a little tale to tell
Is that why you're a star ?
Is that what makes a star ?
Nothing comes for nothing, baby
That fame and fortune's heaven sent
And who gives a f*** about your problems, darling
When you can pay the rent
How much is enough ?"

请问: "nothing comes for nothing" 何解?

And thank you in advance, this is from the lyric of 'Star People' by George Michael.

Or if it's "nothing comes from nothing"? (空穴来风?)

JFYR: I would take "天上不会掉馅饼" to match the vulgarity of the song.

George Michael, always a maverick star and genius at music in my eyes, regardless of his sexual orientation.

The "Faith" album of  George Michael was my first tape I ever bought when in univ. It's awesome and expensive too (cost me ¥18, a handsome fortune then).
